Ok, from reading the manual/viewing pictures, confirm that you plugged in the power switch wires in the pins BELOW the red ones?

Thats a pic. Dunno if anything is wrong in there or not.

It looks to me like you may have plugged in that PWR cable where the speaker pins are. Move the power cable directly down a row.
Check your manual page 25 to see what I'm talking about.

Put the ram in slots 2 and 4...it may be 1 and 3...try 2/4 first.

if everything fails, just take everything apart, then put it back together, i did that on my first build, worked like a charm the second go round.

The correct dual-channel configuration for REV 1.0 of this board is in slots 1 and 2.
OP, could you look at the bottom left corner of your motherboard (according to the picture you gave us) and tell me what rev it is?

test your psu. unplug it from the motherbaord (the big 24 ping connecter) get a paper clip and join the green connection to any of the black. the psu should spin up.

Worked perfectly! Thanks so much. +Rep

I got confused where to plug the power LED's though since there were 3 slots, and the Power LED still doesn't turn on.
post #20 of 29
if the power LED doesnt turn on you might just have put it in the wrong way. turn it 180 degrees and put it back in

p.s. congrats on your first RIG!!!
